Review: Soulprint by Megan Miranda


Alina Chase has been contained on an island for the last 17 years—whether that’s for the crimes of her past life, or for her own protection, well, that depends on whom you ask. With soul-fingerprinting a reality, science can now screen for the soul, and everyone knows that Alina’s soul had once belonged to notorious criminal, June Calahan, though that information is supposed to be private. June had accomplished the impossible: hacking into the soul-database, ruining countless lives in the process.

Now, there are whispers that June has left something behind for her next life—something that would allow Alina to access the information in the soul-database again. A way to finish the crimes she started.

Aided by three people with their own secret motivations, Alina escapes, only to discover that she may have just traded one prison for another. And there are clues. Clues only Alina can see and decipher, clues that make it apparent that June is leading her to something. While everyone believes Alina is trying to continue in June’s footsteps, Alina believes June is trying to show her something more. Something bigger. Something that gets at the heart of who they all are—about the past and the present. Something about the nature of their souls.

Alina doesn’t know who to trust, or what June intends for her to know, and the closer she gets to the answers, the more she wonders who June was, who she is, whether she’s destined to repeat the past, whether there are truths best kept hidden—and what one life is really worth.

Soulprint was a book I absolutely adored. What a cool premise: individuals are paying for the crimes committed by their past selves! I thought the book was suspenseful and I loved the twists the author threw into the story to keep me on the edge of my seat.

Alina was such a relatable main character. I could really feel for her as she tried to distance herself from the crimes of her past self. Although she feels a connection to June, she is resentful for having to pay for the mistakes made by June. A part of the book involves Alina figuring out the mysteries surrounding June’s young and tragic death.

The book is fast-paced and I liked that the action starts from the very beginning chapter. Alina’s escape is dangerous and full of shadowy figures who are never to be fully trusted. Once she’s off the island, the uncertainty continues.

The secondary characters were fabulous. I loved the romance in the book. I thought the book was headed into love triangle territory and I was so glad the author decided not to go that route.  

The only critical thing I could say about Soulprint is that I wish there was going to be more books! Although the conclusion wrapped everything nicely, I want to read so much more about Alina and Cameron.

Rating: 5/5 Stars
